The Supreme Court (SC) today transferred the bail plea of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar to the Delhi High Court and asked it to expeditiously deal with the matter, while declining to entertain the petition saying its direct intervention will be a dangerous proposition. "You are leading a dangerous proposition. If this court will entertain it, it will become a precedent, which will be available to all the accused in the country. Wherever there will be sensitive cases involving political persons or prominent persons or others...you know the atmosphere in the court.
The Bench also said the counsel for all the parties would be given preference while entering into the court room at the High Court and the Registrar General would be responsible for limiting number of people to be allowed to enter inside. SC transfers Kanhaiya's bail plea to HC, says intervention will set a 'dangerous precedent'. The Bench, which asked the High Court to expeditiously deal with the matter did not give any specific date for listing it. The Supreme Court permitted the counsel for Kanhaiya to amend his petition, which is to be filed shortly in the Delhi High Court.
